(1) #Florence #PhotoThread starting 9/14/18.

I have several related threads on the go at the moment. To find them, enter "(1) from:godlessnz" in the Twitter search bar then select the "latest" tab.

My key message: Heed safety warnings to protect yourself & loved ones.
(2) To save time I'm presenting photos without locations and names. Most of the initial batch are from the area first hit in NC: Wilmington, New Bern, James City and surrounds.

Urban SAR team uses poles to check for debris & holes as they walk through floodwater.
(3) Rescuers with part of the huge tree that fell on a home, killing 2 & critically injuring a 3rd occupant.

Tree broken off the stump, showing winds were strong enough that sodden soil wasn't always a factor. Being Cat 1 =/= low risk.

Literally a set of steps floating by.

This is such a good article about poverty.

I remember hitting that bittersweet spot where the food/rent assistance stopped and I was set back for "doing better".

But thankfully, I had made the huge sacrifices to go to college so things got better quickly

However, if not for section 8 housing, I would never have been able to get out of poverty. One year while I was in college, I supported my daughter on 7k for the whole year. When I get my social security report occasionally, I look at that year and my mind is blown.
I never needed #TANF but #SNAP saved us every month. It was hard. I donated plasma to buy diapers. Or rather, I went in twice weekly and let them stick me 10+ times before telling me to drink more and come back in a couple days, they could never get my veins.
